Santa Rosa Junior College authorities found and removed two dozen stickers and leaflets from the American neo-Nazi and white supremacist organization Identity Evropa from the Mendocino Avenue campus Sept. 4.

According to Twitter, other places hit by the Identity Evropa propaganda sticker campaign in late August included downtown Healdsburg, additional locations in Santa Rosa and Sonoma County, and campuses and cities throughout the Bay Area, Colorado and across the country.

Identity Evropa, a self-proclaimed non-violent organization, seeks to defend the identity of people of European heritage in America, according to the group’s website.

While posting unauthorized stickers and literature of any type is forbidden on the SRJC campus, technically no laws were violated, as no physical damage was done, SRJC District Police said.

“We’re monitoring this situation,” SRJC Police Chief Robert Brownlee said. “We’re looking at this group, we’re looking at their Twitter feed, we’re paying attention to their activity outside of campus.”

Erin Bricker, director of district and community relations, said, “SRJC is an institution that’s for inclusion. We want students to feel that they belong, and we definitely do not support the methods of this group. While it is a First Amendment right to be able to speak your mind, we do not support the message that they are conveying.”

Rumors circulated around campus in the week prior to the Sept. 4 incident, indicating that students may have found additional Identity Evropa stickers on the SRJC campus in late August. Police and student services said they were unaware of any postings prior to Sept 4.

SRJC is the latest in a string of postings reported throughout Sonoma County, including the Windsor Town Green in late August.

 According to an Aug. 27 Facebook post, the Windsor police department is seeking information regarding the recent defacement of town property with racist stickers and literature from the white supremacist organization, Identity Evropa.

Anyone with information on who posted the stickers and flyers is urged to contact the SRJC District Police at (707) 527-1000.

    I’ve never heard of these guys, but to me they seem like a sound group just briefly reading their website. Does immigration from less desirable nations really help us as a nation? Won’t we just eventually become like the nations we import our citizens from? I may be overlooking something, but this just makes sense. My son is a hard-line no-immigration type of guy, but I just think that we shouldn’t import citizens from certain countries. Why can’t we just help them at home? Why do the impoverished (who have always been impoverished since the beginning of recorded history) have to come here?

    I believe it is imperative that we resist Identity Evropa.
    Their group had many members attending the Unite the Right rally in Charolettesville, Virginia in 2017. In live stream footage recorded that day its members were seen marching with the American National Socialist party, Ku Klux Klan, and Aryan Brotherhood. They we also recorded beating counter-protestors, making nazi salutes, and participating in the infamous torch rally the night before the official Unite the Right rally took place the next day.
    As far as there website is concerned, in their “education” section, under the “identity” tab, they include a video made by The National Policy Institute, a white supremacy think-tank run by the de-facto leader of the Alt-Right, Richard Spencer.
    Just because a this organization has a sleek logo and presents itself in suit and tie, doesn’t change what it truly is:
    A violent racist white supremacist organization.

    Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if Austin Bernake, who commented before me, is either involved with the stickers on the campus, a member of IE, or just an unaffliated racist. His comments and questions line up with both IE’s and NPI’s propganda, as well as other long used Fascist talking points. The historically false “(who have always been impoverished since the beginning of recorded history)” comment is rather commonly used by modern Fascist groups to justify their beliefs and to make it more digestible to less radical conservatives.
